Antelope Canyon

This is the ever beautiful Antelope Canyon slot canyon near Page, Arizona. Incredible.



Sunrise from Mather Point

This is one more magnificent sunrise from Mather Point in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. Love the clouds.


Mitten Sunset

This is the view of The Mittens in Monument Valley, Arizona right before sunset. Always breathtaking.


Kiva Ladder

In Ancestral Puebloan culture, the kiva was believed to be the center of communal and ceremonial life. This one is at Spruce Tree House in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.


Spruce Tree House

This is Spruce Tree House, the best preserved cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.


Cliff Palace

This is the amazing Cliff Palace, an Ancestral Puebloan village dating from around 1300AD. It is in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.


Ute Flute Player

This was a wonderful performance at the cultural center in Cortez, Colorado.


Trout Lake

This is Trout Lake, high in the Rocky Mountains in southwestern Colorado. The reflection was just too good to pass up.


Mountains and Meadows

This is just outside of the Matterhorn Campground near Ophir, Colorado. Just magnificent out there.


Main Street, St. Elmo, CO

This is Main Street in the wonderfully preserved ghost town of St. Elmo, Colorado.


Rocky Mountain Meadow

This beautiful meadow is on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.


Strawberry Hot Springs

This is the entrance to Strawberry Hot Springs in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It definitely calls you back to an earlier era on the road.


Rodeo Colors

A lovely local girl presenting the colors at the Jackson Night Rodeo in Jackson, Wyoming.



Mormon Row Storm

Mormon Row is a wonderful collection of old farmhouses in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Storm clouds were rolling in from the west.


Tetons and Trees

The Grand Tetons are such powerful mountains. They demand respect. This is just north of Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.


Grand Teton National Park

Always one of my favorite parks, the mountains just soar in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.


Bald Eagle in Flight

We were lucky enough to sit near this beautiful bald eagle for quite some time in Pelican Valley in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.


Black Bear

This little guy ran right past my van in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.


St. Mary Reflection

This was a roadside shot I couldn’t resist. It is from the road to the KOA campground in St. Mary, Montana right outside Glacier National Park.


Mountain, Tree, Person

I don’t know what caught my eye in this shot, but I really liked the contrast and depth of field. This is near Many Glacier Lodge in Glacier National Park, Montana.
